  • Boober's Death

    10
    Boober should've died in this episode. I can imagine it now.



    (Gobo and friends woke up and are cured from their illness)



    Gobo: W-Where am I?



    (Mokey sees Boober dead)



    Mokey: Gasp! Boober! Boober!! Wake up, Boober! Oh, Boober! Please wake up!



    Gobo: (horrified) Oh, no! Poor Boober!



    Wembley: Boober! No! You can't leave us!



    Red: No! Please don't go, Boober! You're the one who saved us from death!



    (Doc arrives with the magical antidote of the water, carries Boober with his arms, and pours the water into Boober's mouth)



    Boober: (waking up) Oooohhhhhh.........



    Gobo and friends: (excitedly) Boober!



    Boober: Mr. Silly Creature, I broke my promise. I opened the forbidden plant. I'm really sorry.



    Doc: Hmm. You're courage destroyed the Poison King, and his evil powers are gone forever. Quite the heroic Fraggle you've become my little Boober.
